Spring Bulb Pageant

Doddington Hall

8 March 2023 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

£4.50 – £22

Join Doddington Hall for a spectacular pageant of spring bulbs, beginning in early February with wonderful snowdrops and winter aconites, Cyclamen coum, and Crocus tommasinianus, continuing through March and early April with drifts of Lent lilies and our unique collection of heritage daffodils (including rare Edwardian varieties) and snake’s head fritillaries until May.

The spring bulb pageant was started in the 1950s by Claire’s grandparents Ralph and Antonia Jarvis. Claire’s father Antony Jarvis and late mother Victoria continued the work and Antony estimates that he has planted or moved 150,000 bulbs in the last 25 years. Claire added a further 5000 snowdrops to the nature trail with some money she inherited from her maternal Grandmother Cecily Mathias. ‘Cecily’s Snowdrops’ have now been enjoyed by visitors since 2005.
